Low quarter civilian shoe

South Union Mills is excited to now be offering authentic footwear that is unique and custom made for SUM. The original of this shoe was worn by an officer in the Mexican War, and our friend Cody Mobley patterned this shoe from that original.  This low quarter civilian style shoe, made from smooth out waxed flesh black leather and is lined with cotton duck, as per the original.  This shoe features brass eyelets and a double pegged sole and stacked leather heel.  No corners were cut with the construction of this shoe. Available in whole sizes.  Note - these have been running consistently a size "small", so if you usually wear a size 10, then order a size 11, etc.

If your size isn't in stock at the time of order, a wait of 4-6 weeks may be required.

    Nice shoes. Good style.

    These shoes surpassed my expectations. They are well made, comfortable, and they fit well. There is no tongue in this shoe, but it's really not that much of a loss. I've been wearing them around for a couple days and they feel like regular shoes. I will definitely be buying these again in the future.

    These low quarter civilian shoes are a wonderful shoe at a more than reasonable price. The customer service was great excellent, when I had a question about sizing, I received an answer the same evening. These shoes feel great right out of the box. Probably the best shoes I’ve ever had for use with 1859s/60s civilian clothing.

    Best Damned Shoes

    These civilian shoes are just over the top authenticity wise: they are canvased lined; the leather is soft and supple; they are correctly wood pegged and nailed, and I can't recommend them highly enough. Scott Cross
